In 1917 Vladimir Lenin and his Bolsheviks overthrew the Provisional Government in St. Petersburg and Moscow. Thereafter they had to fight a bruising civil war against all of their opponents, only emerging victorious after three years of struggle. Thus Lenin only had a short while in power before dying in 1924.
